Today I release 2 new lessons – over 30 minutes — in the ASP.NET MVC 5 Fundamentals series. We begin stripping back the layers of the MVC framework to better understand core components like routes, helper methods, models and data annotations.
New Mega Challenge released today with over 2.5 hours of new video content!
Today we finish up the cheat sheet reviews for the C# Fundamentals via ASP.NET Web Forms Applications.
I’m pleased to announce the reboot of the ASP.NET MVC course, releasing 4 new videos – over an hour of new content – on ASP.NET MVC 5 today.
Today’s videos are specialized lessons to help you in the upcoming Papa Bob’s Mega Challenge, but hopefully they will give you “general insight” into these topics … how the GridView works, how the Entity Data Model works, etc.
New review videos and spring cleaning — renaming files and what that means to you …
Bootstrap by Twitter is the most popular CSS framework available today. Microsoft has fully embraced Bootstrap in various templates in Visual Studio. In today’s video release, I provide an introduction / first pass at Bootstrap’s philosophy, how it can be used to create responsive web pages, especially web forms. I just thought that you would like to style up the next Mega Challenge which I’ll be releasing Friday or Monday.
In my quest to patch the holes in the C# Fundamentals via ASP.NET Web Applications series, I’m releasing two videos today highlighting the NuGet tool in Visual Studio. We discuss the role of a package manager, how to use both the dialog and the command line tool, and how to use the no-commit workflow to exclude third-party packages from your project when distributing the project or when adding your project to source control.
This week I’m filling holes in the CS-ASP series having realized that there were a few topics that I missed and need to plug in. So today I’m inserting a lesson on constants between Enumerations and the switch statement. I’m putting it here because constants have a similar usage / purpose as enumerations: to remove magic literals from your application and give more context / readability to your code.
In today’s release we deploy our working web application out to Azure using tools and wizards in Visual Studio to demonstrate just how easy it is to go live with Azure. We’ll be using their brand spanking new Azure App Services product to deploy the .aspx pages to and Azure SQL Database to deploy the LocalDb to. Not only is this simple, but it’s empowering to see all the pieces come together. You should have a good idea of how to put a basic application together at this point.
